I’ve been in the recruiting business for many years now and love what I do and if I am being completely honest some of my best friends and favorite people call the job function I love their (career) home.
However, there is one thing that recruiters as a whole do that drives me up the wall and makes me want to scream bloody murder at the top of my lungs.
Why can we (recruiters) as a whole NOT figure out that, in a LinkedIn Group, if we are going to post a job that it goes under the job discussion area (on the jobs tab) and not in the regular discussion stream?
It’s not that hard people – click (on the jobs tab), click (on the jobs discussion button), post.
Say it with me – click, click, post.
Again – click, click, post.
Once more – click, click, post.
If you need help with the concept please look me up on LinkedIn and I can walk you through it.
I ‘own’ seven groups on LinkedIn and manage another and I have to say that the two that I do not allow recruiters into are the two that give me the least amount of trouble. Over the years I have found that recruiters as a whole (and again, this is coming from a recruiter) ruin the group experience on LinkedIn with our inability to remember to click, click, post.
Again, to recap – I love recruiting, recruiters drive me crazy because we cannot figure out how to click, click, post, and contact me if you need help with the concept.
Until next time – good luck and good hunting.
